Good Morning! January 5th.... the holidays are over and I hate to be the bearer of bad news....but it's time to get back to work.
Better embrace it cause time is tick.... tick.... ticking.
I know you want to punch me huh:)
If you've been following me on Instagram maybe you caught some pictures of a new project I have been working on. The biggest part of it is the kitchen....and lucky for me the builder/homeowner [Michael Ladisic of Ladisic Fine Homes] is working with Matthew Quinn of Design Galleria.
Talk about jackpot. Kapow!
At our first meeting the homeowner had thoughts of gray cabinets mixed with red. Since I am a visual person I ran around the showroom looking for some red, brass, and pewter to get a feel of how it would look!
After we left I went searching for some inspiration and saw this image. A little deeper than red with hints of plum and burgundy.
Here is a picture of the space looking straight on. You can't see it in this picture but to the right is a pantry about the size of my guest room:)
That is actually where the red cabinets will be and in the main part of the kitchen they are dark gray mixed with a rifted oak island.
Here is the color for the red....which is more of a deep burgundy color.
So....here is how it would look all together....
The brass fixtures will go over the island and the Hicks fixture will go over a vintage island in the pantry.
I can't wait to see this one come together....working with Matthew Quinn is amazing.
A few thoughts he has about putting together a kitchen....
**No more than 3 different metals or 3 different colors in one space.
**He also said after selecting your stone either use the same material as the backsplash or choose a subtle complementary textured tile. If the countertops are honed [dull] choose the opposite finish for a tile backsplash.

I will keep you posted on this one as it unfolds. The cabinets are being installed now.
